poster for Kyoji Takubo Exhibition

This event has ended.

The first comprehensive solo exhibition in Tokyo devoted to Kyoji Takubo (1949—), an artist known for his Chapel of Apple restoration project. After initially working in such genres as performance art and objet d’art, Takubo from 1987 devoted more than ten years to the restoration of a small chapel in Normandy. Today, he is engaged in a long-term restoration project at Kotohira-gu Shrine in Shikoku that shows the varied character of contemporary artistic endeavor. His career has unfolded within a struggle between a movement outward from the site, involving relocation and border transgression, and creation that respects the scenery within the site and gives play to the structure of the existing culture there.

是非とも多くの方に見ていただきたいです。何が展示してあるのかよくわからないままMOTアニュアルのついでに見に行きましたが、とてもよかったです。メインとなる展示は「空間を創り上げる」という仕事内容を可能な限り美術館内に再現するといったもので、特に、まだ製作途中という琴平の椿のオイルパステル障壁画が圧巻でした。展示内容の性格上、展示の良さがチラシからあまり伝わってこないのが大変残念です。
